First, I wish you all a very Happy New Year!
Second, I've seen numerous blogs doing a list of their favorite polishes/brands of 2013 (well at list in a lot of the blogs I read), but I am not doing that this year. I first started my blog back in July, so part of me feels like that's just not a long enough time in the indie/blogging scene to do that kind of post justice. Especially since I haven't gotten around to even swatching some of the polishes I've received and I just know at least a few would make it on my list.
So with that I have decided not to do a list of my favorite polishes or brands this year, but I will do a shout out to the brands that I have reviewed this year, and I can't thank these brands enough. Some of the makers I have gotten to speak to and some I have not, but I am truly thankful for these lovely people who work so hard to give us such pretty paints for our nails ^_^
But before I get to the shout out...
Here is my nail art for New Year's Eve. It is nothing elaborate by any means. It is just very simple. I used Girly Bits' Giggity Giggity Goo as a base, and I used My Ten Friends' First Contact as an accent. I had a different plan for my nails but sadly my package didn't arrive in time so I went with Plan B.

I used 1 base coat, 2 coats of Giggity Giggity Goo, 1 coat First Contact, and 2 clear top coats. Everything went smoothly and I think overall it looks great. I think the next time I use this technique though I will put the full glitter coat on my thumb and just dab the tips of all my fingers with glitter.
Still.. fabulous polishes and so sparkly! ^__^
And now onto my shout outs, and in no particular order (I apologize grately if I end up missing anyone!). Thank you to:
